Sister Love

"There can be no situation in life in which the conversation of my dear sister will not administer some comfort to me"
Mary Worley Montague

My sister Peggy came from Calgary this past week-end, so we had just a short time together.  We see each other quite rarely but she is one of my favorite people.  

She reads and sews and leads women's Bible studies and is a great cook and quilter, among other things. And she doesn't own a cell phone!  
 These are a couple quilt projects she has given me...(I know, lucky me.)

There was a hard frost predicted the first couple nights she was with us so at 10 PM she helped us harvest our fruit crop.  Here are 4 of the 8 bags we picked in the dark.

On Saturday we hiked the Heiroglyphic Canyon trail in the Superstition Mountains.
One of the rockier trails she has hiked, she reported.

She's game for anything (as you can see) and we had a great time walking and enjoying lunch and God's creation.

These may look like graffiti left by kids. But they aren't.
Archaeologists aren’t sure who left the petroglyphs in Hieroglyphic Canyon, but most think they were drawn between 700 and 1100 A.D., during the Hohokam habitation.

We saw hundreds of saguaros (or was it dozens; I wasn't counting). 
They have a relatively long life span and take up to 75 years to develop a side arm. 

Enough of the travelogue. 
 This posting is about my amazing sister.  So glad she came and look forward to seeing her again in 4 months, at Angie's wedding.
